Mavericks sign McGee

The Dallas Mavericks bolstered their frontcourt on Thursday by adding center JaVale McGee to their roster on a two-year deal. 

McGee, who has played for the Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers, established himself as one of the most entertaining and dominant big men in the league during the last two seasons he spent with the Wizards. 

He continued that trend during his first two seasons with the Nuggets, but he was dealt a setback when he suffered a stress fracture to in his left tibia in November 2013. 

McGee made his comeback in October 2014, but has not been the same player he was as he averaged 5.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game in comparison to the 11.9 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks he averaged during his best season with the Wizards, which came in 2011/12. 

McGee only spent the first half of last season with the Nuggets before he was traded to the 76ers in February, where he lasted less than two weeks as he was waived on March 1 after playing just six games.
